John Waddingham was internationally known, but is remembered as the Art Director for The Oregonian for twenty years (and Art Director at the Oregon Journal thirteen years before that), and an artist of popular local appeal. His accolades are extensive: the winner of numerous awards, works represented in numerous galleries and museums throughout the country, exhibitions and one person shows in America and Europe, a member of the American Watercolor Society and other important art organizations, an illustrator, art teacher and show judge. Waddingham was a featured artist in American Artist magazine on three occasions between 1956 and 1998.
The diversity of Waddingham's work will surprise many, including those collectors already familiar with his oeuvre. While he was a accomplished representational artist, with an expressionist slant, Waddingham was also a modernist of note and expert print maker.
